I’d like to congratulate David Haye who last night slew the giant to become the Heavyweight champion of the world.
This may not be strictly music related, but we watched the fight last night and it was nice to see a Bermondsey boy achieve great success, particularly as Rob and I were both born a stone’s throw (2 miles) away from him in Greenwich, South East London.
As it says in our about us section, “Rob and Kal” only met when we went to the same secondary school at age 11, but we were born two months and three days apart in the same hospital in Greenwich. It seems strange to say it, but Haye’s age, charisma, his status leading up to the fight as the “David” in the David and Goliath scenario and his hometown really allowed me to really identify him – and he proves that the dream is possible.
It’s always nice to see that if you work hard enough and are constantly looking to improve, you can get there. Quite literally the Hayemaker has demonstrated that if life knocks you down, you get back up stronger.
Anyway, enough of the clichés, I’m definitely going to try and get to his home coming fight in the new year. It looks like that South East London boy will be selling out the O2 before this one!
